WBC interim champ Dillian Whyte has called out three potential heavyweight opponents as he continues to push ahead with his world title ambitions.

The 31-year-old Brit star returned to the squared circle earlier this month after beating Mariusz Wach on the undercard for Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz Jr's rematch.

And Whyte has now taken to Twitter to call out Alexander Povetkin, Otto Wallin and Ruiz.

He tweeted: "who ever [sic] want it can get it am the can man let's go baby it's time to get back on top again."

Speaking after his unanimous decision victory over Wach, the Brit revealed that he is targeting his next fight in March or April 2020.

"I would like to be out at the end of March, or early April," he told Sky Sports.

"I'll be ready to go. I'm having my final week off, then back to training, I'll be training over Christmas.

"Let's start planning, so we can build a good event and get a good fight.

"A fight that I've got notice for and I can train for. Make it another spectacle in London.

"Povetkin, Ruiz Jr and Otto Wallin. Those are the kind of fights.

"Even Manuel Charr for the WBA 'regular' title, if he wants it. That's a great fight. Charr would be a good one."

But the 'Body Snatcher' had the doping violation dropped earlier this month and the WBC reinstated him as the mandatory challenger for Deontay Wilder's championship.

Whyte has fired out a shot at fierce rival Wilder by branding him a "coward" and accusing him of running scared.

"I'm not confident of anything to do with Deontay Wilder anymore," he explained.

"The WBC want me to fight, I want the fight, I'm mandatory, but Deontay Wilder don't want to fight.

"What more can I do? I can't do any more. Deontay Wilder is a coward. He's a proper coward."
